CNC - Backlit LED Sign

This was a fun project. Using a relatively inexpensive CNC, some scrap wood, and some LED lights it's possible to make some really cool back lit signs. Back lit signs are also possible with nothing more than a rotary tool and some time. Thanks for taking a look.

To manipulate the graphics I used a very old version of Adobe Illustrator and then a very cool and free program called Jscut at www.jscut.com. Jscut will generate the g-code in your browser - nothing to download.

The video shows the process.
